"Both Sides, Now"
I've looked at life from both sides now,From win and lose, and still somehowIt's life's illusions I recall.I really don't know life at all.
Help me,I think I'm fallingIn love with you.Are you going to let me go there by myself?That's such a lonely thing to do.
"A Case Of You"
Just before our love got lost you said,"I am as constant as a northern star."And I said, "Constantly in the darkness, Where's that at?If you want me, I'll be in the bar"
"Blue Motel Room"
I've got a blue motel roomWith a blue bedspreadI've got the blues inside and outside my headWill you still love meWhen I call you up when I'm down
I wish I had a river so long,I would teach my feet to fly.Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on.I made my baby cry.
"Court And Spark"
His eyes were the color of the sandAnd the sea And the more he talked to me The more he reached me.But I couldn't let go of L.A. City of the fallen angels.
"Free Man In Paris"
I deal in dreamers And telephone screamers.Lately I wonder what I do it for.If l had my way, I'd just walk through those doorsAnd wander Down the Champs Elysées,Going cafe to cabaret, Thinking how I'll feel when I find That very good friend of mine.
